Pepa's Eyes 03:16
Pepa’s eyes they glow Through the dark of her soul She takes her pen and draws All the shapes that she knows Heart of ivory Feels the world as it is A smile, a kiss, she flows Through the arms she awoke Pepa’s eyes won’t dry With my words of goodbye She drives my hands to carve The shape of her in my mind
2.
No Faith 05:31
No faith in you No faith in me No faith in what I hear Some talk and talk To feel they’re real Some think and drink Just like me No faith in you No faith in me No faith in what I see I sit and watch The girls go by They cross my eye And never come back No faith in you No faith in me No faith in what I sing Some smile and shake my hand They grab my cash, I do the same
3.
The Dream 04:30
In a dream I stood facing a mirror Showing the reflection of you and I But every time I turned around My lover would vanish from my sight First thing I saw as I opened my eyes Was the picture I took of you in July Northern beauty bathed in the evening light Your side of the bed is a desert now One day I might turn into fire Ready to burn your house down to the ground Keep in mind you’re the one who lit the match I held in hand and waved as a sign
4.
Blue Raven 04:36
Dark blue is what I am At such times of the year Friends call but i don’t care That’s cause I need you I must hide above grey skies Where no light can hurt my eyes Free of all those blinding lies That’s where I’ll see you I fly among the ravens Wings spread to greet your hand So rare, you lay with care That’s how I love you
5.
I Might 02:48
I might repeat myself With words already said I need to find the cause Of all the tears my eyes won’t hold I might discard this song And let it sing itself Why should she make amends For all the things that I have done wrong I might feel just fine Away from all the rhymes I pen for her to read A melody she will not hear
6.
I have sinned more than once In the time we’ve been apart Now I kneel only Before the creatures that torture me I have found the thrill of life In an apple Well I ain’t the best you have But still, I ain’t so bad At least I think at times When I watch some others around I redeem myself in music At least I try Yes I have sinned more than once For I’ve laid hands upon What shines in the dark, it seems You gave me eyes to turn blind The moment I open the door Of desire
7.
From the window you can see Shores of the island you should leave Hot waves of sand burn through the city All the men that came have drowned in it Listen to the waves for me Listen to the words they bring Home is missing from your dreams Love, missing from your deals Call off the game you deceived Living in the name of greed Listen to the waves for me Listen to the words they bring I have fled your land I ran away For what I longed for was misplaced I stole from you Listen to the waves for me Listen to the words they bring

Mirror 04:07
You have something on your mind Let me be the one Helping you relieve the weight Some thoughts can make us bear These signs of despair I’ve seen them before In the lines of strangers’ faces They speak more than words You and I are not so different I can hear what you’re thinking Just like a mirror Reflecting your pain Drink my words as liquor Warming your head on a winter’s day Let these few notes soothe your breathing We’re going the same way
10.
The Valve 05:02
As it starts It feels like a force Unseen Then the words They pour down so sweet and clear From the Valve A waterfall that’s always been Shored upon An island that’s lost at sea Memory forever flows beneath Your skin Won’t you shed your mysteries before you leave The Valve Is opened wide I see, I see you fair Breathe me the sigh The one that I long to oust Time now stretches I’m coming back to you Guide me to rest within Within your tide I’m coming back to you Don’t leave me yet There’s still so much more To feel It’s coming back to me Then it stops
